Hi I have been a long time member of the forum but this is my first post. It is that time in my life- discussing engagement rings. I thought this process would be a breeze but turning out not quite so. I started with the classic tiffany setting which I think is lovely. Then one day I just wandered into Cartier and fell in love with Cartier 1895, the simple one without pave. My boyfriend wants me to have the ring that I would love, but he only wants to see it on my hand after he proposes. So we have not gone ring shopping together, which makes this harder. He too likes the classic Tiffany but prefers the 1895. The twist to the tale is that I went back to Cartier and Tiffany and while there, tried the Embrace and fell in love with that one too. Its dainty and quite lovely. I came back and told him this and now all his best laid plans are all topsy turvy . Well I am driving him nuts with my indisiveness. One minute 1895 and the next minute Embrace. So I want to turn to all you guys on the TPF to help me with this dilema. Should I go with the timeless Cartier 1895 or the delicate Embrace? Most likely it will be one or the other. FI still likes the 1895. oh and we are looking for something over a carat and for around $15-20K.
